2020 Print Collection: Terra Memoria

Behold this box of treasures and memories. A butterfly wing. A shell which once housed a life, an adventure, a meal together. The meanings have changed over the years as memories flicker like afternoon sunlight through the window, but the objects remain. I'm still awestruck. I still live with a sense of wonder. I still love these priceless things which came to me or free, on a breeze or from the ocean.

They are symbols of transformation and they are often our first explanations of the meaning of transformation that we learned in kindergarten as we watch a butterfly transform from a caterpillar when it emerges from a chrysalis. To paint this without color is to acknowledge that something is missing and something has been drained from the collective soul of our society.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eA Life Without Color series is my artistic wrestling with the aggregate dysfunction of our society amidst a global pandemic. This series seeks to address the reality of our country amidst the pandemic and the grave realities of racial inequality in America. My heart aches for Black mothers...I want my artwork to do something...I want it to say, “I see your pain, it’s not fair and it’s not right, and I’m here for you.” I want it to work for Black mothers. I pledge to do more than live the status quo while Black mothers endure injustice. This is for you, Oregon, a city reckoning with civil unrest. This is for all the moms who had a baby in the pandemic. This is for the stressed, the stretched. This is for my heroes. This is for the unknown and the not yet born. This is for hope, and for a future. This is for you.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eLayers\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eOne of the special things about this panting are the layers. We all have them. It’s the gathering of years, milestones, and losses. It’s the mountain tops and the valleys and the endless stretches of days in between. Layers create texture, which creates depth. Living authentically means that it would be impossible to deny the events that shape texture on the canvas of our lives. Layers tell a story and sharing that story creates beauty and culture which make life worth living.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eShine\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThis painting tackles some very moving and deep issues in life, and it is full of commanding presence. Areas in this painting are painted with iridescent pigment to capture the light, and they shift with the morning and evening sun. When direct light is placed on the painting, it absolutely DANCES with light. The feeling of this piece is one of and grounding energy due to the symmetry and emphasis of the butterfly wings. The patterns found in the wings of the butterfly are energizing and eye-catching, yet the cool colors and the flowing, abstract background provide rest and reprieve for the eyes and the soul.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eColor\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThe largely monochromatic variety of grays are a backdrop for the subtle rainbows placed throughout the painting. They are like prisms of light which dance into the room in all their brilliance from windows or a diamond ring. They are a reminder of God’s promise amidst our pain, of the beauty that diversity brings, and that we are more beautiful together as we sing in harmony together.\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2020-11-19T20:38:51-08:00","created_at":"2020-11-19T20:35:23-08:00","vendor":"DOMKO Fine Art","type":"Fine Art

symbol of hope as it flutters on the breeze. They are symbols of transformation and they are often our first explanations of the meaning of transformation that we learned in kindergarten as we watch a butterfly transform from a caterpillar when it emerges from a chrysalis. To paint this without color is to acknowledge that something is missing and something has been drained from the collective soul of our society.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eA Life Without Color series is my artistic wrestling with the aggregate dysfunction of our society amidst a global pandemic. This series seeks to address the reality of our country amidst the pandemic and the grave realities of racial inequality in America. My heart aches for Black mothers...I want my artwork to do something...I want it to say, “I see your pain, it’s not fair and it’s not right, and I’m here for you.” I want it to work for Black mothers. I pledge to do more than live the status quo while Black mothers endure injustice. This is for you, Oregon, a city reckoning with civil unrest. This is for all the moms who had a baby in the pandemic. This is for the stressed, the stretched. This is for my heroes. This is for the unknown and the not yet born. This is for hope, and for a future. This is for you.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eLayers\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eOne of the special things about this panting are the layers. We all have them. It’s the gathering of years, milestones, and losses. It’s the mountain tops and the valleys and the endless stretches of days in between. Layers create texture, which creates depth. Living authentically means that it would be impossible to deny the events that shape texture on the canvas of our lives. Layers tell a story and sharing that story creates beauty and culture which make life worth living.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eShine\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThis painting tackles some very moving and deep issues in life, and it is full of commanding presence. Areas in this painting are painted with iridescent pigment to capture the light, and they shift with the morning and evening sun. When direct light is placed on the painting, it absolutely DANCES with light. The feeling of this piece is one of and grounding energy due to the symmetry and emphasis of the butterfly wings. The patterns found in the wings of the butterfly are energizing and eye-catching, yet the cool colors and the flowing, abstract background provide rest and reprieve for the eyes and the soul.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eColor\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThe largely monochromatic variety of grays are a backdrop for the subtle rainbows placed throughout the painting. They are like prisms of light which dance into the room in all their brilliance from windows or a diamond ring. They are a reminder of God’s promise amidst our pain, of the beauty that diversity brings, and that we are more beautiful together as we sing in harmony together.\u003c\/p\u003e"}
